Wednesday’s Factors and Events

U.S. stock index futures were lower Wednesday morning as market players remain focused on U.S.-China trade developments.

Wall Street ended Tuesday’s session lower, as investors continued to search for clarity in trade negotiations between the U.S. and China.

This remains the biggest topic that stock investors are watching for. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Monday he thought Washington and Beijing were “on the cusp” of reaching a deal. Despite positive comments from different members of the U.S. administration, market players are yet to find out how far-reaching any deal could be.
